Ordination

It's official. I will be ordained as a minister of Christ on the evening of March 1st, 2009 at Macomb Christian Church. While I have been operating as such for the last year, there is just something special about publicly declaring this committment and seeing God's favor through the support of my church.

Father,
My life is yours. Use me to glorify yourself. I will seek first your kingdom and righteousness. This is my prayer:
"Let every desire fall away except that for only you
Let every pleasure fail to satisfy our want
Let every sinner know all grace and mercy in the truth
Lord these are the prayers of our humble hearts

Let every action fall away except that which is from faith
Let us hold fast to you in quietness and trust
Let every sin and sinful way be confessed to you in haste
For you are merciful and so lovingly unjust

Let your judgements begin to stir
Let us discover what you are worth
Let your will be done on earth
As it is above
If any treasure were to be found
We would only desire your renown
If any suffering or sorrow is to come--
Only let us love you, Lord,
And let us love."
